Last year, Titus Andronicus played a Vice-sponsored Halloween party that culminated in frontman Patrick Stickles being assaulted by a hired security guard. (Stickless subsequent blog post totally shouldve made the latest Best Music Writing anthology; get thee to Google if you havent read it yet.) So perhaps its no surprise that for this sure-to-be-boozy New Years Eve gig, Titus have teamed up with Todd P, New Yorks go-to pal of the punk-rock people. Come for the rowdy civil-war-allegory anthems; stay for the improbability that anybodyll try to beat you up. With fellow Jersey boys Real Estate, Andrew Cedermark, and Julian Lynch.
